The First Thing I Saw This Morning

THE DESERT

February 22, 2017 3:54 PM

Something was wrong. Something was very wrong.

I paused the movie I was watching and looked at the actor’s eyes. His mouth had vanished.

When I looked at his mouth, his neck vanished.

My brain was going. It wasn’t working right. I’ve know for the last couple of days this was happening, but now it was affecting my vision. … Read more…

When someone writes to you and says…

Thanks for the wonderful book. It literally saved my life.

… that’s a powerful testimonial.

I hope you’ll take the time to read our dialog in its entirety: … Read more…

Trip To Florida

PHOENIX, AZ

February 7, 2017 10:07 AM

I’m flying out to FL tomorrow to visit the family for a week. No problems, just a… what do you call a family visit when you just want to see them? Anyway, I doubt I’ll be updating the blog during that time. … Read more…

As I made my way back to Phoenix, as I sought to find a place Morrissette had told me about, as I thought about visiting my family next week, just then a tall dust devil appeared in front of me and I recognized how far from anything I was and I thought, “I’m the only person who sees you,” and She whispered:

Everything is temporary. Everything but us.

And as the whirling column faded away into nothing, I whispered back, “I see you… I see you everywhere.”

Sometimes She sings it to me. Sometimes I sing it to Her: I See You.

I guess in the end… it’s all the same.

And I Said, “Sure.”

She said, “It’s time to leave.”

And I said, “Sure.”

She said, “Turn here.”

And I said, “Sure.”

She said, “Now drive.”

And I said, “Sure.”

And I came across a Poet and he said, “I was just heading out for a walk. Would you care to walk with me?”

And I said, “Sure.” … Read more…

Plants Get The Best Views

OUTSIDE AJO, AZ

As I drove into town to upload some videos, I noticed a woman by the side of the dirt, desert road holding a hoe.

As I pulled up beside her, I rolled down the window and asked, “Are you the one who put up all those little wire cages around the plants I see along this road?” … Read more…

Life Is Hard In The Desert

Life Is Hard In The Desert

Life is hard in the desert. Water is rare, and growth is slow. So every plant has thorns to protect their precious flesh.

I stood before a tall Saguaro cactus and wondered, “Has anyone ever touched you?” … Read more…

A New Era For Seekers Of Enlightenment

Forgive all the videos. I’m going though a “set-up” phase. This one is the lead-in to my YouTube channel. It acts to introduce what makes Mystical Oneness different and what it can do for the viewer.

I’m still playing around with various formats. Maybe I should stick with the slide-show format (ie: above) for the more “technical” stuff and the talking-head format for the softer, more spiritual side. Who knows? You guys know me: Dive in, stumble about, and get beat up until things clarify.

The wise have their scars. 🙂

Over the last few days I’ve been loading up my brain with the goal of uncovering a sense of direction:

So with this “pre-loading” of my brain, I pulled away all me-thoughts (a benefit of the skill of enlightenment), expanded, felt the Love flow and went for a long walk in the desert. … Read more…

Spiritual Teachers, Transparency and the Internet

COTTONWOOD, AZ

I came across this video this morning of David Bowie discussing the future of the internet back in 1999. At around the 1:50 mark he says, “there’s a new demystification process between the artist and the audience,” in reference to how the internet is affecting music.

The same, I hope, can be said for the future of spirituality, particularly the “worship” of many of today’s spiritual teachers. Francis Bennett recently posted his frustration with this very topic and I’ve been talking about it for years (my original(?) post on this subject was back in 2010). … Read more…
